In Memory of Elijah Okikiola

Monday, April 18, 2016

Elijah Okikiola was an RN-BSN student from Nigeria who would have graduated in the fall of 2016 but sadly passed away on Saturday, March 26, 2016. He was a man who could walk into a room and light a darkened room up with his smile, jokes, and humor. Elijah left behind a wife and three children. His RN-BSN Faculty Advisor, Dr. Rivera-Hancock remembers, “Elijah loved learning and fully participated in classroom discussions with brilliant insights. He was known for having a positive attitude and he will be missed by all.”

The Okikiola family has set up a fundraising page to help them pay for his funeral in Nigeria. Please help the family by donating here.

If you are not able to contribute financially, his wife and family would appreciate your time by contributing to the family with prayers, respect, and by remembering Elijah’s positive characteristics.
